Families choosing cremation may also have a casket viewing, funeral service and a burial. Many find this traditional format of final arrangements provides them with a sense of comfort. The funeral directors of Scarpa-Las Rosas Funeral Home offer rental casket and cremation casket choices. They make their peaceful facilities available for a visitation, viewing or wake. If desired, families may choose to have this service held at a cremation chapel or at a place of religious worship. After the funeral, the loved one is taken to a crematorium. After the cremation process is concluded, our staff can arrange for a private or public service for the final disposition of the cremated remains.
Funerals serve many important functions. They allow the living to pay their respects to the departed and to offer condolences to the family left behind. They are a gathering place for mourners to assemble in order to share memories of the deceased and reflect upon his or her life and accomplishments. Funerals honor the relationships that the loved one had with family and friends. They are away for survivors to acknowledge the finality of death. A funeral service provides an environment in which to those close to the deceased may find comfort and support. Most importantly, as agreed about by all grief experts, funerals are an essential component of the healing process.
